We are pleased to invite you to The First International Workshop on Kansei to be held in Fukuoka, Japan, on February 2nd and 3rd, 2006. This workshop focuses on ‘Kansei’, the perceptual and cognitive ability to intuitively/deductively feel, comprehend, and appreciate the appearance of an object or scene, and consequently, the world around us. In dealing with this topic, our aim is to bring together scientists from various fields of research (Psychology, the Arts, Physiology, Neuroscience, Linguistics, Musicology, Architectonics, Information Science, and so on). All participants who wish to present their research are required to submit a short abstract. After peer review, we will invite accepted presenters to write an extended abstract for the Proceedings of the First International Workshop on Kansei.

February 2nd and 3rd (Thursday and Friday), 2006
(An oral session, poster session, banquet (2nd) and invited talks are planned)
